ok read my entire story and tell me if the acura warranty guys are trying to fuck me over.!!

- as of today, friday 25th, it will be 2 weeks on the dot from the day i went to acura to let them look at my cracked leather to see if it is replaceable under warranty. they said yea it is going to be under warranty so they ordered my parts and i left to go home. Well today marks the 2 weeks mark of them ordering my shit, well today i decided to call them to see what the hell is up. They said yea ur parts are in but they are in cloth not leather. I was like omg they are sooo fucking stupid. What dumbass can wear out cloth seats to bring to the dealer to get fixed under warranty?? Automatically i was pissed and so was my dad. My dad got on the phone and said whats going on, my son has leather not cloth. Then i think this is where the BS comes to play. they put my dad on hold for a few minutes and come back on the phone and asked my dad. Where did u buy this car. My dad said from a dealership in DFW. But he didnt state a acura dealer, because it wasnt. Then acura says well from ur VIN# from ur car, it seems like the last owners did a complete leather swap from cloth. At this point i was :firemad: up while my dad was on the phone talking to acura. They said that the car was ORIGINALLY bought from a dealership a few cities away. So the acura rep that my dad was talking to is going to call that dealership to see if my car was really built with cloth interior. I have a feeling that both acura dealerships are gonna make a deal to not fix my leather. so now im waiting for their phone call. its been almost and hour but no call yet. END OF STORY.!
- now do u guys think this is BS? are they trying to fuck me over? i dont get why a person would do a complete leather swap.? that shit aint cheap!! somebody help me out on this situation. im really pissed right now, i feel like im getting fucked over baad. :thumbsdow

My leather is starting to crack but I didn't think that they would cover that it is good to know that they do. The best thing might be to go down to the dealership and talk to them in person if they still jerk you around ask for the manager and talk to him on the sales floor because he will try and keep you clam with the other customers there that are buying cars. If you make a seen the customers know that they would not want to do business with that dealership. So they should try and make sure that you are happy they don't wanta lose other sales because you are pissed. Good Luck

lol i have a k20a3 guys, i kno i have a base. Now if i had a type-s and they said the same shit, i would tell them their dumb and cant fuck me over-no joke i would tell them on the phone. I have 17k miles and the cracking is pretty bad on the top bolister where ur elbow would be. They are also changing out the bottom bolister where ur left thigh would be. If i had a digi i would take pics. but picture having black leather with section that is almost completly white from the cracking..lol BTW i condition my seats too. and im not fat! lol

Sounds like the same thing happening to my leather. I need so see pix of someone elses leather before it was warrantied so I can see if I can get mine done. They fixed the broken seat track but put the seat together incorrectly so I have to take it back. Again.

ok if u see white, ur should get it fixed, but if their are creases (sp) in the leather they prob wont, because i have some on my passenger side and they said that, thats how leather is. and its always gonna have crease marks. but if u see white and if it flacking, u will definetly get it fixed. Mine is flacking a tiny bit but they is tons of white cracking.
